Ersin Deger, Ph.D.

Visiting Assistant Professor of Mathematics

A friendly atmosphere is vital in class, and it is not the job of my students, but rather mine to build that. It is a safe bet to say that students would hate being in a math class where they are on edge. Therefore, I work hard so my classroom is a fun and relaxed learning environment where they feel comfortable, they can get involved and feel free to ask questions or make comments.”

Dr. Deger has a PhD in mathematics from Purdue University, IN and a master of science degree from the University of Minnesota, MN with emphasis on industrial math. He grew up in Istanbul, Turkey and went to Bilkent University, Turkey where he received his bachelor's degree. He loves soccer, cooking and singing. He is married and has one 9-year old son.
